Short summary:  Mr Ferguson of Quaritch's has confirmed that the copy of "De motu cordis" which appeared recently in their catalogue almost certainly is from the addressee's library; it was stolen by Arne Holmquist who visited Waller in August 1935 together with the author; Arne Holmquist had been stealing books also from the author during 1935, in the end of 1936 he began to show signs of mental trouble and committed suicide in 1937; Ferguson gave A.H. £175 for the book and he hopes to be able to get it back for the addressee
